So I have an issue getting online with Minecraft
« on: 2 Oct 2020, 18:47:42 »
For some reason a little while ago the launcher forgot my username and password, that's no problem I thought as I kept a copy on a notepad file in a random folder on a drive somewhere. However when entering the password it says its just plain wrong.

I am trying to rectify this but having some issues understanding how to do it. I will get there, eventually.

So the nuts and bolts of this is, please do not delete my homes etc! I will be back, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Sorry to hear you're having issues with Minecraft. If it's the game client itself not letting you log in I'd suggest you check out some of the help articles at https://help.minecraft.net/, you can also contact Mojang from there to ask for assistance if you're still having problems.

Your things on Noobstown won't be removed while you're having access issues now, don't worry about it :). Hopefully you're able to get access sorted though.

I had this issue before, it wanted to use my Microsoft name and password, since Mojang was bought by Microsoft. I dunno if this helps you, but this is what worked for me. I think I also reset the password a few times, which was a thing too.

Mine is an old account so should want user name (not email) and password. I know the name and password are correct, I just have no idea why it suddenly decided one day to forget and not automatically let me get on the game.

Just to be clear, the issue is not with Noobscraft/Noobstown at all, just with the launcher.

Hi Xenorac, If you haven't migrated your Minecraft account to Mojang then you would need to use your username rather than your email (New accounts do this automatically, though old ones do not.)

I would recommend you try and see if you can login to the Minecraft website and see if your login works there, if it does then it would show that it would be an issue with your launcher.  If you cannot login to the Minecraft website, I would recommend you reset your password and make and then reattempt to relogin.

If it is solely a launcher issue, I would recommend uninstalling and reinstalling Minecraft fully and see if it works then.
